Roast beef:
4 ounces of cream cheese, softened
¼ cup minced fresh cilantro. I love cilantro.
2 to 3 tablespoons minced peppers
1 garlic clove, minced
½ pound thinly sliced roast beef

Ham and Turkey:
12 ounces cream cheese, softened
½ cup shredded carrot
½ cup shredded zucchini
4 teaspoons dill week
½ pound thinly sliced ham
½ pound thinly sliced turkey

In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, cilantro, peppers and garlic. Spread about 2 tablespoons on each slice of beef. Roll up tightly and wrap in plastic wrap. In another bowl, combine cream cheese, carrot zucchini and dill. Spread about 2 tablespoons on each slice of ham and turkey. Roll up tightly, wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight. Slice into 1 ½ inch pieces.
To add an extra bit of flavor, wrap the meat and cheese around a stalk of asparagus. Enjoy.
